 Just popping by to share a card using the  Ex-Libris stamp.  
 (Page 128 - Autumn/Winter catalogue). 
This gorgeous (and versatile) vintage image is large enough to create a beautiful card front, and the design incorporates a blank cartouche for your sentiment. 
I stamped the cartouche a second time, cut it out and layered with foam dots to give a little dimension. 

Other SU items used:- 
Old Olive ink pad, clear embossing powder, Curly Cute sentiment, Bird Builder punch (leaves)
and the sensational Champagne Glimmer Paper.

I am entering my card into Lady Anne's Challenges - Anything Goes, (+ must have a stamped image - digi or rubber).
 Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes.

Happy Crafting ~
